Once you substitute spaghetti squash for your old processed noodles, you will never go back. This recipe is simple and so healthy!
  • 1 large spaghetti Squash
  • olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise from top to bottom. Try to make your halves as equal as possible so they will cook evenly.
  3. Scoop out the seeds with a fork and discard seeds and stringy middle (or separate the noodles from the flesh and roast later with a little salt and olive oil for a healthy snack).
  4. Brush about ½ tablespoon of olive oil on the flesh part of each half of the spaghetti squash (1 tablespoons total).
  5. Place the lightly oiled squash flesh side down on a lined cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 1 hour.
  7. Take out cooked squash. You want the skin to be brown and crusty. When you turn the squash over, the flesh should also be browned. Some squash, depending how big they are, can take a little over an hour so be prepared to keep squash in for another 20 minutes until the "browning" occurs.
  8. Simply fork out the squash and you will see the squash easily come out stringy just like normal linguini noodles.
  9. Sprinkle a little salt and serve alone or with any meal you would normally serve with pasta noodles.
